Are you struggling to get started in the morning right now?
We don’t blame you: it’s been a long winter of dark, cold mornings. There’s ice outside, the kitchen floor is cold, and your coffee maker takes forever. But there is hope – and not just in the form of spring’s imminent arrival.
Forest Security’s Alarm.com app can help you start your day better.
When you turn your home into a Smart Home , you make it more than safe and secure – you make it smart, able to act automatically to make your everyday life better. From saving energy to staying aware of what’s happening, you’ll notice the benefits all day, every day.
And here’s how one of those days could start.
6.30: Your House Warms Up
You’re still fast asleep, but your Smart Home is already up and working for you. Half an hour before you wake up, your app’s scheduling turns your smart thermostat up by three degrees, adjusting your home from a cool sleeping temperature to welcome you warmly to your day. By the time your alarm clock goes off, getting out of bed will be a comfortable experience.
6.55: Your Coffee Maker Gets to Work
A simple smart plug turns any coffee maker into a connected device. Simply place the smart plug into your coffee maker’s normal power outlet, load your machine up the night before, and set a rule in your Forest Security’s Alarm.com app to switch it on five minutes before you wake up. You’ll only need to set the rule once and it’ll work every day. Unfortunately, we can’t load the coffee for you.
7.00: Your Smart Lights Welcome You Out of Bed
As you get out of bed, your landing and bathroom lights turn on automatically, triggered by the motion sensor above your bedroom door. It may be dark and gloomy outside, but your route downstairs to your (freshly automated) coffee is bright, and the kitchen is warm. It’s going to be a good day.
7.45: Your House Secures Itself Automatically
Forest Security’s Alarm.com Smart Home security system connects all of your compatible devices together, allowing you to automated them based on triggers from a single device. With a single rule in your Alarm.com app, you can lock your front door and automatically have your security system arm itself, your lights turn off, and your thermostat switch to savings mode. That’s time and money saved every day.
7.53: You Forgot To… But It’s Okay!
So, it’s easy to rush out of the house without securing it properly sometimes. You’re busy; it happens. Don’t worry, though – Alarm.com knows that you forgot and sends you an alert.
You pull over, open your smartphone app, and arm the system remotely. There’s no need to turn around; no need to be late, thanks to our Geo-Services location automation feature.
Have a great day!
